"Micronutrient deficiency is the most widespread and dangerous health condition of the 21st century." - Jayson Calton

In this episode I have a fantastic conversation with micronutrient specialists Mira & Jayson Calton who are also the authors of my #1 book recommendation "Rich Food, Poor Food." We had a marathon 2 hour conversation about the science of nutrition, and specifically how important micronutrients are to our overall health.

Why the food pyramid is backwards and how it strips us of micronutrients

How there is a micronutrient solution to whatever health ailment you are suffering

How much the science of nutrition has changed in the last 20 years

What specifics things are micronutrient depleters

Why calories in vs. calories out just doesn't work but why calories still matter

The pitfalls of thinking "calories don't matter"

The science behind high fat, low carb diets and how to do them properly

In this episode I have a conversation with Dr. Edison de Mello, CEO of the Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine and founder of the supplement company Akasha Naturals. We talk about the toxicity in our modern environment and food supply and why it's important to consider taking various supplements if you want to do more than just barely survive. We also talk a lot about the supplementation industry and why it's important to know where your supplements come from. Our conversation is mostly "big picture" but we do talk specifically about two essential supplements for those who want to thrive: Vitamin D and Omega-3 fish oils.
